The Spice Girls invited two fans onstage at their concert in Manchester last night (May 31) for a memorable proposal. Spice Girls fans couldn’t believe it when two super-fans got engaged on stage.
Lee Christie left his super-fan boyfriend Duane Watters in shock when he got up on stage and popped the question during Friday’s show. The incident took place at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium. However, it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner.
Afterwards, in an apparent dig at her ex-husband Stephen Belafonte, Mel B said, “Make sure you get a prenup.”
Furthermore, netizens have gone crazy over the cute couple who got engaged on stage Spice Girls tour.
“OH MY GOD proposal onstage at #SpiceWorld2019 and Mel B says ‘make sure you sign a prenup’. I’m obsessed,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
Mid-way through their set, the girls invited Lee to join them in front of the huge crowds. Lee got down on one knee to ask Duane to marry him. Happily, Duane said yes, and the pair shared a kiss before Mel hilariously interjected with some words of advice. Isn’t that so cute?
The Spice Girls – minus Victoria Beckham – sang their classics including ‘2 Become 1’, ‘Wannabe’ and ‘Say You’ll Be There’ at the concert.
Inclusive all Genders
The Spice Girls’ long-awaited reunion tour kicked off on May 24 with a sold-out show in Croke Park, Dublin and a new inclusive mantra for LGBT+ fans.
Ahead of the first concert of the Spice World 2019 tour, Sporty, Scary, Ginger and Baby released a new raft of merchandise that brings their Girl Power ethos bang up to date for 2019.
A Spice Girls T-shirt designed by non-binary artist Kate Moross carries the message: “We welcome all ages, all races, all gender identities, all countries of origin, all sexual orientations, all religions and beliefs, all abilities.”
The tour will continue in Manchester for one more night. Later on, it will be moving to Coventry’s Ricoh Arena (June 3-4) and then on to Sunderland’s Stadium Of Light (June 6).
